Possibly. You could've been incredibly depressed and went to a terrible theater to watch it the first time, making the experience quite undesireable.

Where are these people saying it sucks? I havent seen any.

My nephew got it earlier on and says its a great port that feels much better to play than it does on 360. He already has the 360 version.

My friend pirated it and I watched him play and it does not suck at all. it looks incredible. I played the 360 version like 4 times and I can say the PC version looks great.

I will be buying it later though instead of being a dirty pirate hooker

PC version looks awful, its missing the patented Mr. Magoo effects that can only be done on the ultra powerful 360.

PC version obviously looks better but the difference is not big enough to have any kind of impact on overall experience. The game is a borefest though.

Well from what I read the complaits were mainly about how the game controls with keyboard and mouse.

20-30fps vs 60fps makes a big difference to me.

It controls perfectly fine on KB/M. I was using the sixaxis controller for a while, then I changed to KB/M and found it to be better. As for graphics, the main differences are that the PC version doesn't have a strange blurry effect covering things, it has better detail distance and the shadows are far better. The textures are really poor though for a PC game. They've clearly not changed those.

Nothing can beat the cinematic look of 960x544 and 30fps.

so 360 version > pc version by million miles

What a tool. Motion blur & DoF = Cinematic. Blurry image caused by low resolution and the motive to hide aliasing and bad texturing does not look "cinematic". It looks like sh*t.

So true. 30fps is crap once you get used to 60. Eurogamer has a nice comparison of Kingdoms of Amalur showing in one of the videos the 360 version which is 30fps and PC which is 60fps. The difference is huge.

Alan Wake finally woke up from that horrible blurry mess that is the Xbox version.:lol:

I'm glad I can finally get this in true HD 1080p/60fps:cool:

Looks a bit crisper on PC, but far more cinematic on 360

I would definatly play both versions for their own perks

Game looks great to me. It's obviously not going to look as good as the PC version due to the hardware. What fool would even compare the 2 version together anyways? The XBox 360 doesn't have the same hardware as current PC's. That is like me pulling my PS1 out and comparing it to games on the PS3 or 360. lol!! Just dumb. I'm still getting it on my XBox 360. The game is going to play the same.

360 will win in sales as usual. Sigh....

Why would anyone care what anyone says in this thread? That's the real question. lol!! Make your own damn judgment and move on. Comparing a PC game with the newest technology to a console released 5 years ago is just dumb.

Graphics only. Which doesn't matter to everyone. PC technology today is over 5 years ahead of the XBox 360 as well. Lets compare games again when the next generation starts and the games can do the same resolution as PC's. lol!!
